Rostec will double the resource of the AI-222-25 aircraft engine for the Yak-130

The resource of the AI-222-25 aircraft engine used on the Yak-130 combat trainer will be doubled, the prototype of the modernized power plant will be ready by mid-2021. This was announced by the head of the Salyut production complex (part of the Rostec UAC) Alexei Gromov.


Speaking to reporters, Gromov said that the company's specialists are working to improve the reliability of the hot section, turbine, combustion chamber, compressor section to increase efficiency and improve operational characteristics. The work is carried out on the basis of the AI-222-25 operating experience.

Of course, we use the experience gained during the operation of the AI-222-25 to increase its reliability, quality, resource ... As for the resource, doubling is considered a success.

- he said.

Gromov added that by the middle of this year it is planned to produce all the components to confirm the performance on one turbine.

In the future, the increase in the resource will affect both new engines and those already in operation, which will be modernized when they enter for repair.

It is noted that this is not the first increase in the resource of the AI-222-25 engine. Since the start of production in 2009, it has already undergone modernization.

AI-222-25 is a bypass turbojet engine installed on the Russian Yak-130 combat training aircraft. Since 2015, it has been manufactured entirely from Russian parts and components. Manufacturing enterprise - production complex "Salyut".

        The resource will be brought to 3,5-4 thousand hours ...

      "... Moscow. December 23. AviaPort - The resource of the AI-222-25 aircraft engine developed by the Ivchenko-Progress State Enterprise is planned to be doubled," Igor Kravchenko, General Designer of the Ivchenko-Progress State Enterprise, told AviaPort.
      According to him, at present, in accordance with the schedule, work is underway to increase the resource of AI-222-25 from today 750 hours to the first overhaul and 1500 hours of the assigned resource to 1500 hours before the first overhaul and 3000 hours of the assigned one.
      At the state enterprise "Scientific and Production Center for Gas Turbine Building" Salyut ", together with SE" Ivchenko-Progress ", endurance bench tests of the AI-222-25 engine No. 222011 for a service life of 1500 hours (3000 hours assigned) have been completed and the state of the engine after the tests is being assessed." Lifetime bench tests will be continued on engine No. 222003 ", - said the general designer ....."

        For December 2020 - overhaul 3000, assigned 6000
        Before that in 2009 600/1200, in 2017 1500/3000

      750 hours before the first overhaul and 1500 hours of assigned resource

      We know that:
      Assigned Resource - the total operating time of the product, upon reaching which its operation should be terminated regardless of the condition of the product.

      But back in 2020, there was an article on VO:
      https://topwar.ru/177686-srok-sluzhby-dvigatelja-ai-222-vdvoe-menshe-brazilskaja-pressa-objasnila-preimuschestva-ubs-m-346fa.html
      In which even then it was disassembled:
      "The service life of the AI-222 engine is half as much": the Brazilian press explained the advantages of the M-346FA

      And there it is given:
      As explained, fuselage life is estimated at approximately 8 flight hours. the power plant - at 4 hours with overhaul every 000 hours.

      So, the bear still wears the skin and does not want to take it off.

    What kind of resource did he have that it could be increased in leaps and bounds?
    Here's more on the topic:
    December 1, 2020, AviaStat.ru - The United Engine Corporation of Rostec has applied new materials and modern technologies to increase the engine resource of the Yak-130 combat trainer. Thanks to this, since 2016, the resource of the unit, which is assembled at the Salyut production complex, has doubled, and since the start of its serial production in 2009, it has quadrupled.

      An interesting question. After all, it can be doubled from 5 to 10 hours and from 500 to 1000. The resource of our NK-12 during the production period from the initial 150 hours was brought to 5000, though not at one time, but step by step. But the first modernization (NK-12M) also doubled the resource, from 150 to 300 hours.

    Well, as it were, the turbine and the combustion chamber are the components of the "hot part".

      This engine has too much power reserve (oversized), and at cruising speed it would operate at reduced rpm, pressures and temperatures in the hot part, which causes increased specific fuel consumption.

        Yes, we have a sorely lack of fuel, so we don't need an airplane either. yes or is it still needed?
        It is clear that both the airframe and the avionics and the engine need to be modified, modernized and modified. All equipment goes through modernization.
        Why not take up the Yak-40? It was a wonderful plane for its time, reliable, easy to fly and for any runways. IL-114 follows a similar path, only turboprop engines.

            IL-114 is designed for 48 passengers, it is somewhat larger.

        If instead of three standard AI-25s, two AI-222-25 are used, then to achieve cruising speed, the engines will use the nominal mode. It is perfectly acceptable, however.

            With the existing AI-25? Didn't hear from that. But even so, nothing prevents us from increasing the number of seats by a dozen, as is now being done everywhere. The fuselage is slightly lengthened and the number 100, 300, 400 is added to the brand of the aircraft ...

              we are talking about replacing the engine with more than a thousand aircraft that are on the ground due to too much kerosene consumption, and as a result, high prices for the flight.
